New Budget Allotments

Postby imcurtis » Sun Feb 13, 2011 10:30 pm

Hi all,
It would seem my budget allotments are not aligned with the directions given. Maybe I misunderstand. Has anyone else seen this?

The amounts in question are for the Primary and YSA.

The formula as listed says to multiply the number of members in MLS that meet the requirement by the percentage as listed then multiply that by the allotment.

So for Primary it would be ((x)the number of confirmed members age 8 to 11) * ((y)percentage of all primary in attendance)*((z)allotment after the stake take their cut)

For YSA it would be ((x)the number of members age 18 to 30) * ((y)percentage of Sacrament meeting attendance)*((z)allotment after the stake take their cut)

What I got in my budget from CHQ was xz.

Is this a mistake or do I just not understand?

If I misunderstood the first my second question is irrelevant. Is there a report in mls that will give me the X is both equations?

I have build a custom report that gives me the number for Primary but I can't build a report that gets me the YSA number. The number on my quarterly report for YSA says 44 and the budget allotment came for 22. After I exclude full time missionaries and Priests who have turned 18 but are still in high school I get to 32. What am I missing?

There is no exclusion for priests who are in high school or full-time missionaries. The number of YSAs is simply single members 18-30 as of the end of the quarter. As mentioned in the linked post, it's difficult for you to calculate that exactly, since you don't know the precise timing of how CHQ handles records in transit around the time of the end of the quarter.

But I think what you are misunderstanding is that the number on the budget allocation report already factors in the attendance. So if your quarterly report says you have 44 YSAs and your sacrament meeting attendance is 50%, then your allocation report will show 22 as the number (and then the dollar figure and stake percentage will be applied to that number).

Just as the budget allocation report shows actual attending YM (not the total number of YM), it shows the calculated attending YSAs (not the total number of YSAs).
Questions that can benefit the larger community should be asked in a public forum, not a private message.
